No specific reason other than having no maintainer.  I had contacted
Bill Denney in 2011, the list package maintainer, who requested to be
removed has maintainer.

Marking bioinfo as unmaintained was proposed in 2014 [1] and no one
spoke against that one.  Also, the last commit may had been in 2013
but the last release had been in 2009.
